I wish everyone on the planet could know this song. You have to be carefully taught to hate.
Think back to the first time you hated someone who was different from you and your family. It probably did come from legitimate fear at the time.
I think this song means that we could teach love. There seems a lack of it lately. People afraid to hug. People are afraid to hug a child! Just think of that.
And I have agoraphobia, yet I'm reaching out this way. I hope the whole world can work on teaching love. Peace. Compassion. Kindness. These can be taught too.
